Thailand: A Message From John At SOI Dogs.


SOI  Jan 1

Dear Mark,

On behalf of everyone at Soi Dog, I would like to wish you a Happy New Year and thank you for all the help you have given to dogs and cats in need. Only because of you, can these sick and injured animals get the care they need and deserve and a second chance at a happy life.

I’d like to take a moment and share with you the inspiring stories of Aquila and Finch, just 2 of the many dogs you have saved, as well as an update on the progress of the new life-saving dog hospital and a sweet cat looking for a loving home.

I’d like to share with you the story of a little girl called Aquila and the difference you have made in her life. If you ever doubt that a small monthly gift from you can achieve anything, please read on.

Aquila arrived at our shelter fighting for her life. Just a few weeks old, she was suffering from an extreme case of mange. Tiny and weak, she struggled to eat. All her fur had fallen out, apart from a few sparse tufts on her back. She was scared and confused – and all alone in the world.

Thanks to you, Aquila was able to receive the treatment she so desperately needed and has now blossomed into a friendly, affectionate and playful pup. It is such a stark contrast to the frightened and miserable puppy who first came to the Soi Dog shelter and who had appeared to have given up on life.

When dogs like Aquila arrive at our shelter, they are completely reliant on YOU. Without your support, there is nobody else we can turn to on their behalf. Will you please click here to save more animals like her?

At just 3 years of age, Finch was hit by a speeding car, sustaining such serious injuries to both his eyes that he lost his sight. Having grown up on the streets, never knowing a loving touch or a kind word, this beautiful boy really had a tough life. It is only thanks to people like you that he didn’t lose his life.

Finch was in agony when he arrived at our shelter. So severe was the damage to his eyes that both had to be removed. Tests also revealed that he was suffering from blood parasites and heartworm, requiring urgent treatment.

Finch recovered well from his surgery and, despite all he went through, is a friendly, affectionate dog, who loves nothing more than to have a few cuddles and give kisses in return.

Finch’s lucky day came recently, when he left the Soi Dog shelter for his new home in Canada, where he has settled in well. Finch will never have to struggle to survive again and now knows love like he has never known before.

If you think you may have room in your home and your heart for a rescued dog or cat just like Finch, please click here.

Thanks to compassionate animal lovers, work continues on Thailand’s first ever dedicated hospital for street dogs.

With the extensive tiling work now being 85% complete, we have just taken delivery of some specialist equipment funded by people like you. The air-conditioning units and ultra-violet equipment to prevent the spread of disease is now being installed and the ceiling boards are being fitted. The hospital has passed its first electrical test and there now remains just the ceiling lights and power sockets to add. Construction has also just started on a waste treatment plant.

This life-saving hospital for dogs has come so far thanks to people like you becoming Angels for Dogs. Will you please join us on our final push to save the lives of thousands of sick or injured street dogs every year?

Rej was dumped at the gate of the Soi Dog shelter as a kitten and one year later he is still waiting for a home of his own. He has seen so many other kittens and cats find new homes, so he must be wondering why he is being overlooked.

Rej is FeLV+ (feline leukaemia positive), meaning he can only be adopted to a home that has no other cats or with cats that are also FeLV+.

Rej is a real sweetheart. He is very friendly and playful and can often be found playing with his toys or playing hide and seek with you. What he loves most though is cuddles, and he would love nothing more than to have that special someone to snuggle up with.

Gorgeous Rej really does deserves better than a life in a shelter. He can easily be adopted to Thailand, the US, Canada or Europe and our Adoptions Team will organise every step of the process for you. He also has half of his travel costs already covered!

Please give Rej the chance he deserves. Please email all questions to or click here for more information.

Without you, these dogs and cats would have no one to turn to. I cannot thank you enough for all your kindness and compassion towards animals in need. Thank you for all your support and I know together in 2016, we will save thousands more lives.

John Dalley
